First things I did after install LMDE

Postby crimzoneyed on Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:48 pm

So today I switched from normal Mint to LMDE(Gnome), here was the first thing's I did to get everything working the way I wanted, dual core and mono free and some more stuff.

After clean install:

1. Fixing sources list: Open terminal and type
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


After that mark all text with CTRL+A and replaced it with:
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

CTRL+S to Save, then close.

2. Run mintUpdate and press refresh. After that install the mint update.
After that try press "update pack info". Make sure it says:
Your system configuration: Your system is pointing to the 'Linux Mint Debian Latest' repository
Current Update Pack available: 3
Latest Update Pack Used by this system: 3


3. Now before I install any updates I completely removes "Mono"** by typing the following in terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge cli-common mono-runtime

** Warning, this will remove the following:
banshee* banshee-extension-soundmenu* banshee-extension-ubuntuonemusicstore* cli-common* gbrainy* libappindicator0.1-cil* libart2.0-cil* libgconf2.0-cil* libgdata1.7-cil* libgkeyfile1.0-cil* libglade2.0-cil* libglib2.0-cil* libgmime2.4-cil* libgnome-vfs2.0-cil* libgnome2.24-cil* libgtk-sharp-beans-cil* libgtk2.0-cil* libgudev1.0-cil* liblaunchpad-integration1.0-cil* libmono-addins-gui0.2-cil* libmono-addins0.2-cil* libmono-cairo2.0-cil* libmono-corlib2.0-cil* libmono-i18n-west2.0-cil* libmono-management2.0-cil* libmono-posix2.0-cil* libmono-security2.0-cil* libmono-sharpzip2.84-cil* libmono-system2.0-cil* libmono-zeroconf1.0-cil* libndesk-dbus-glib1.0-cil* libndesk-dbus1.0-cil* libnotify0.4-cil* libtaglib2.0-cil* libubuntuone1.0-cil* mono-2.0-gac* mono-csharp-shell* mono-gac* mono-gmcs* mono-runtime* tomboy*


4. Finnaly I have Mono is gone, time to get a new music player. I prefer "Clementine Music Player". So to get the latest version (1.0.1) you have to add the following repository in sources.list, so open the sources.list by:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

then add the following line:
Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main


Back to terminal and:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install clementine

after that I remove the "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main" since It conflict with other sources.

5. I don't use Firefox so let's replace it with chromium:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install chromium

& purge Firefox(gecko and sun plugin have to be purged also or else it will install iceweasel:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge gecko-mediaplayer && sudo apt-get purge sun-java6-plugin && sudo apt-get purge firefox && sudo apt-get autoremove

Done!

6. VLC?!!!!! PURGE it with fire before it lay eggs!
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge vlc


7. Hmm what do we have left... Oh yea Dual Core functionally! (32-bit)
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.0.0-1-686-pae  && sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.0.0-1-686-pae


8. Back from reboot! Now the guide will be done twice as fast!

9. Update/upgrade. Ok it's time to upgrade! open Mint update, hit refresh and then press "install updates"

I have to continue tomorrow on this since it's a bit late now and I'm off to bed.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for noticing.
It was because someone first told me the "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main" was for clementine only...
But that also added a lot of packages conflicts.

I mostly use my computer to listen to music, read manga, watching anime and "play around" with the OS.

Problem is that VLC is completely worthless when watching anime.
